If there’s one thing that unites people during times of crisis, it’s internet shaming. This time, it seems it’s being used for the greater good. COVIDIOTS—a portmanteau of COVID-19 and ‘idiots’– has become a widely-used term to describe those who shirk their responsibilities as global citizens, ignore medical advice and forgo social distancing practices during the coronavirus pandemic. Below, a collection of ‘covidiots’ and quips about ‘covidiotic’ behaviour. Have you noticed a #COVIDIOT out in the wild? Tweet about it to us at @macleans.
